If everything is agreed upon, find a way to contact the daughter and move the signature along. Sounds like there should have been some provisions for timing to sign the deed, but that only comes in hind sight.
Best of luck,

Loans cause complications all the time. It's usually best to wait these things out! What are the agents involved saying?
A loan is "funded" when the lender wires money to escrow.
The sale - and the loan - are "closed" when the proper deeds are recorded with the county AND the escrow officer distributes all funds held in escrow to whomever is to receive them.
When you say the loan is "closed" do you mean "approved"?
I agree with Jimmy, you need to speak with your broker (who may or may not be a REALTOR(R), many agents are not REALTORS(R)). Most agents create a timeline for their clients to illustrate the specific event sequence scenario and mandatory milestone dates for their sale. Ask you agent to take you through that timeline - it should answer your questions.
